"This dessert pizza pairs nicely with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a cup of vanilla coffee, or a tall glass of cold milk! I made this for my son's high school graduation, for Reese's® Peanut Butter Cups are his favorite! I wanted to do something different, so I thought why not make a dessert pizza from his favorite treat? I just hope I can control myself around this dessert now!"

refrigerated sugar cookie dough
creamy peanut butter
miniature chocolate-covered peanut butter cups (such as Reese's®), halved
I made this for my 10 year old son who was asking for a new peanut butter dessert. I have to admit that I was bit skeptical about this recipe at first, but since it seemed simple and I had all the ingredients on hand, I figured I'd give it a shot...and I'm glad I did. First off, this recipe is so simple and easy that kids could make it themselves. The sugar cookie "crust" with the peanut butter makes it taste like a peanut butter cookie with Reese's on top. This would also be a nice easy dessert (thought a bit messy) for a pot luck, if you're looking to bring something different.
I made this for a 7 yr old's birthday party & it was a hit ( especially with grandpa!). I also made this in a 13 x 9 jelly roll pan as I was transporting this. I let the peanut butter and sugar cookie dough come to room temperature to make sure it would spread. It was easy and quick to put together & looked great. I also used mini peanut butter cups and cut each piece into square bite sized cookies just before serving. I suggest keeping this in the refrigerator until ready to serve as it quickly began to 'melt'. Will do again and maybe try different 'candy' toppings or drizzle chocolate on top.
This was just ok for us. I made my own sugar cookie dough, but otherwise followed the recipe. I'm not sure how the peanut butter "frosting" is supposed to spread, mine was super thick and almost impossible to spread. It tasted pretty good, and my kids liked it, but I can't rate a recipe 5 stars that I have to make a bunch of alterations to so it will work. I won't make this again.
Everyone loved these and many asked for the recipe. I made them in a 13x9 pan so they were more like a bar cookie but still excellent. I did add a little bit of vanilla to the frosting cause I thought it needed it. Frosting was a bit hard to spread and was very peanut buttery might try something to make it a little smoother next time. Will make again!
Not very good.
